Tessier, Henry Oswald (c.1814)

I am looking for information on Tessier, H.O.(c 1814) and came to Australia (from United Kingdom? in 1840's) and is my gg grandfather.

Nothing seems to be known of the family prior to coming to Australia. May be connected with wealthy Huguenot jewellers in London of the same name (or the story may be a genteel fabication by one of the family spinsters...),or may be connected to Samuel Tessier "a missionary from Otaheite [Tahiti]" who was granted permission to become a free settler in the New South Wales penal colony in 1810.
